These grilled scallops are FANTASTIC and really simple to make. Once prepped, they take less than 6 minutes to cook. They can be served as an appetizer for four, or as a main dish for two.
I wanted to make them outside on my grill yesterday, but it was raining so I made them on my indoor grill pan instead. If you live in a small apartment, or don't own a grill, a grill pan is a must. I own several grill pans, in different shapes and sizes; because these skewers are long I opted for my double burner Lodge Cast-Iron Reversible Grill which I've had for years and love. The other side is a griddle, great for making breakfast on the weekends.
A few tips for success when grilling scallops. You'll want to be sure your grates are cleaned and very well oiled to prevent the scallops from sticking. Scallops are very delicate, so if it sticks you'll break them. Using a double prong metal skewer will prevent the scallops and orange from rotating on the stick. If you don't have them, you can use wooden skewers (soaked in water 30 minutes) and just double them up.
